Possibility of manual intervention in case of delta import
SAP system startup and shutdown, including virtual hosts
Until now, it has been common practice to create test systems as a client or system copy of the production system on a specific date. In these cases, a single client or the entire SAP system is duplicated. The corresponding instances of the SAP system have to be reinstalled. In addition, a copy of the source database must be created. These are standard procedures, but they can be disproportionately expensive for productive data sets of several terabytes. SAP and third-party tools for selective data extraction can significantly reduce the cost of deploying non-production SAP systems.

Nowadays, companies are required more than ever to react agilely and flexibly to the demands of the global market. It is not unusual for them to have to introduce new processes and projects particularly quickly and securely for the benefit of their own competitiveness. At the same time, their system landscapes are becoming increasingly complex due to mergers and acquisitions and the use of new technologies.
Critical factor: Availability
Shutting down and copying virtualized systems, such as VMware instances, requires just a few mouse clicks. VMware is suitable for running multiple training, development and test environments on one physical system. Larger productive systems, on the other hand, are not so easy to virtualize. If users have to shut down the productive system during the copy, the runtime of the operation or the unavailability of the productive system becomes a critical factor.

One to two pre-tests are required, one of which should be performed on the production system. The additional load on the production system caused by the IMIG has been negligible. Split/mirror techniques allow many actions to be moved from the production machine to another machine.

For some time now, SAP customers have been supported in system copying by very powerful automation tools that can be used as needed, such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems". Nothing has to be installed in your SAP systems for this - no transport requests, no AddOns!

SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system. Here you can find some useful information about SAP Basis:

In general, this means that error situations can be handled as needed and with pinpoint accuracy.

Incremental Migration (IMIG): - OS- and DB- independent - for homogeneous and heterogeneous system copies - for Unicode conversions - for ABAP systems as of 4.0B.
